Milwaukee Loses Again To Philly 5-7

Brewers starter Doug Davis gave up four runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings, extending his unbeaten streak to nine starts.

After Mike Lieberthal's RBI double in the sixth gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead, the Brewers went ahead on RBI singles by Rickie Weeks and Bill Hall. Geary only once before entered a game with the Phillies leading this season.

"I thought it was an ideal spot for him. He had been pitching good," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

Jim Thome's two-out RBI single in the third scored Burrell, who had doubled, to put the Phillies ahead 3-2. Hardy's first career homer, a two-out drive deep into the left-field seats, tied it at 3 in the fourth.

Abreu made it 2-0 in the first with his 16th homer, a long shot that hit high off the brick wall that stands behind the shrubs in center field.

Helms tied it at 2 with an opposite-field shot in the second, hitting the 11th pitch of his at-bat into the right-center field seats for his second homer.

"They're hot," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "Burrell didn't hit it good, but good enough to get out."
